As Elvis Costello keeps making the talk-show rounds promoting his new album National Ransom, so does Tony Millionaire's cover art. Note how Late Night host Jimmy Fallon holds the album so as not to obscure any of the artwork on Friday night's episode — nicely done, Jimmy. (Screenshot via a well-wisher of Tony's.)

Elvis Costello brings Tony Millionaire('s album art) to The Colbert Report

OK, so we got excited when Tony Millionaire's cover art for Elvis Costello's new album National Ransom appeared as an eeny weeny thumbnail on The Colbert Report last week. Well that was just the appetizer to last night's (I suppose inevitable) main course, when Costello was the guest on Colbert's show. The two discussed the artwork (without mentioning the artist... c'mon, guys), which was plastered all over the place during the segment. Watch the episode here.

(Incidentally, Janice has been trying to contact Elvis's people to get him to do an "Under the Covers" interview about Tony's artwork — wish us luck!)

Visitors to the Charles Burns appearance this Saturday evening at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery are in for a treat. Eye candy! While supplies last, we'll have free copies of Stéphane Blanquet's fabulous full color TOYS IN THE BASEMENT mini-comic, which includes a 2-page preview of THE LITTLEST PIRATE KING by David B. For indie music buffs we have a limited quantity of the scary 5-song "Haunted Fang Castle" CD by the sensational Spits, including an illustrated booklet by J. J. Rudisill. And our friends from Frontier Records dropped by with a stack of cool full-color vinyl stickers by Jaime Hernandez commemorating 30 years of pleasurable punk rock. [Hit the Frontier link above for a better look at Jaime's illustration – Ed.]

If that's not enough, with each purchase we'll be giving away free copies of Richard Sala's EVIL EYE comic book. All this and Charles Burns! A Halloween to remember.

Elvis Costello's new album National Ransom, featuring cover art by Tony Millionaire, is currently streaming for a limited time on the Colbert Nation website, which means that Tony's artwork appeared on the closing segment of Tuesday's episode of The Colbert Report! (Thanks to Jacob for the screen grab.) Hey Stephen, get Tony on your show — you won't be sorry! Here's a better look at the cover art:

Radio Comix

I Am Secretly an Important Man

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery curator Larry Reid will appear with musician and producer Steve Fisk on Seattle's KEXP-FM this Saturday evening at 7:30 [90.3 FM in Seattle and streaming worldwide at KEXP.org – Ed.]. The segment will focus on the recent documentary I Am Secretly an Important Man by NY filmmaker Peter Sillen. The movie chronicles the life of esoteric poet Jesse Bernstein, often cited as "the Godfather of grunge." The movie runs at the Northwest Film Forum October 22 - 29. In the film Reid is interviewed during his stint as a curator at Seattle's Experience Music Project museum, where he organized a Bernstein exhibition. He's standing in front of Charles Burns' original cover art for Sub Pop 200, on which Bernstein appears. Fisk produced Bernstein's posthumous Sub Pop release Prison.

While on the subject, we should congratulate Fisk for his production work on Soundgarden's Telephantasm album, which went Platinum last week and is featured on the new "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock" video game. Kudos also to Fantagraphics friends Ben, Matt, Chris and Kim. Hey, don't you fellas need some new comic books?

Gary Groth passed this along to me to share with you: Davd Collier appears in this promotional video for Canadian singer-songwriter Luke Doucet's new album Steel City Trawler, which includes "an original comic book interpretation of lyrics from the new songs, Hamilton’s geography and history, as well as Luke’s own life, past and present" by Collier. Samples of the work can be seen in the video and on Doucet's website.
